Legendary Television has optioned Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins' Grass Kings for development as a TV series, as first reported by Deadline. Originally published by BOOM! Studios, the Grass Kings TV show will be adapted by screenwriters Grant Wheeler and Ben Freiburger.
"A rural mystery series that follows Robert Pike as he creates a separatist society among the island homesteads of Alaska to insulate himself against the loss of his murdered daughter," reads BOOM!'s description of the comic book. "With help from the fellow outcasts and misfits that join him, Robert will grow an off-the-grid community into his ideal civilization. But as his kingdom grows, so does the list of adversaries that threaten to tear down what he’s created. Only with the help of his family can Robert hold the demons within, and without, at bay."
Kindt and Jenkins are signed on as co-executive producers, along with representatives from BOOM! and Legendary.
